That's cute, and has a grain of truth to it. To bring this back around to a
conlang connected topic -- have any of you developed "genre" jokes in your
conlangs like these silly lightbulb jokes or Aggie jokes or "no arms, no
legs" or little moron or *snicker* elephant jokes? Are there categories of
inherently funny things in your conlangs?
So lift the cup of joy and take a big drink.
In spite of it all it's a beautiful world.
